By now, if you’ve been following along you know that most bath and body products have a mysterious chemical brew with known questionable ingredients.
Synthetic fragrances are a big issue. They have been linked to reproductive issues, allergies, and other problems.1 There’s also DMDM hydantoin (also called glydant), a preservative because of how it releases formaldehyde. I could go on, but you get the picture.
And why not make your own? It’s:
1) super frugal. After all, if you want good ingredients, you’re going to pay more to buy healthier products, but it is cheaper if you make those products at home.
2) you can add what you want
3) you’re more self sufficient
4) and after all the nourishing ingredients you can focus on adding some essential oil scents (also good for you) to make it smell however you like!
A Total Win!
